BREATH: THE NEW SCIENCE OF A LOST ART by James Nestor
There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again.

BURNOUT: THE SECRET TO UNLOCKING THE STRESS CYCLE by Emily Nagoski, PhD, Amelia Nagoski, DMA
Burnout. It’s no surprise that many women in America have experienced it. What’s expected of women in today’s world and reality are two different things—and women exhaust themselves trying to bridge the gap. How do you “lean in” at work when you’re already operating at 110 percent with zero recognition? How can you live happily and healthily in a sexist world that is constantly telling you you’re too fat, too needy, too selfish? Sisters Emily Nagoski, PhD, and Amelia Nagoski, DMA, are here to help end the cycle of overwhelm and exhaustion. Instead of ignoring the obstacles and societal pressures that stand between women and well-being, they compassionately explain what we’re up against—and show us how to fight back.
